GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Flirting with 100-hour SMA/trend-line confluence support

   •  The pair has been oscillating between two converging trend-line over the 1-1/2 week or so, forming a bearish rising wedge chart pattern on hourly charts.

   •  However, repeated rejection slides from the 1.2700 handle continue to find some support near the lower trend-line support, now coinciding with 100-hour SMA.

   •  Technical indicators on hourly charts though have been losing some traction, have managed to hold in the bullish territory and seemed supportive of the dip-buying interest.

   •  Meanwhile, oscillators on the daily chart haven't been able to recover from the negative zone, indicating persistent selling bias on every attempted move higher.

   •  Hence, it would be prudent to wait for a convincing breakthrough the mentioned confluence support before traders start positioning for any meaningful near-term downfall.
